"Know It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint"

This article is a nice, inspiring profile of two mothers who wrote a book about parenting children with autism. "Parenting Across the Autism Spectrum: Unexpected Lessons We Have Learned" by Ann Palmer and Maureen Morrell, shares the perspectives of one parent with a high functioning child and one parent with a child with severe autism.
" 'There's a tendency, especially nowadays, to branch off," Palmer says. "Parents of kids who are high-functioning feel like they don't need to be around those who are more challenged.
"That's a mistake.' "
